Ellen on Body Image: "It's a Double Standard"



In an recent interview for @katiecouric,Ellen DeGeneres said "it's a double standard" when it comes to women and body image.

"There are men with really beautiful women that don't have great bodies," she said. "Yet nobody is saying anything about that."

"It's not fair," Ellen added. "The way that magazines airbrush everything, women are looking at bodies like that going, 'my stomach doesn't look like that. I'm supposed to look like that?' So they starve themselves and they work out like crazy."

"It's not important. We put the wrong emphasis on what beauty is, and what health is."
